Wedding Photography for Ania and Patrick – St Katharine’s Church, Great Bardfield and Anser Gallows Farm, Hempstead

We were privileged to be be asked to photograph Ania and Patrick’s Wedding as Patrick is another local Professional Photographer!  The heat was on in more than one sense of the word!  Our day started early at The Grain House, Baythorne End, where Ania, her Parents and Bridesmaids were getting ready.  It was nice to see  Michelle, again, doing a lovely job as always.   Being an extremely hot and humid day, everybody was grateful for the coolness of the wonderful Grain House.  This accomodation is great for everything to do with a Wedding, light, spacious, and with good opportunities for pictures of the details and grain house baythorne endAnia  looked beautiful in her Wedding Dress which she had bought in Poland. We took a few pictures of her together with her Parents and Sister  and the Bridesmaids.  We left to go to St. Katharine’s Church, Great Bardfield, for the Church service.  On arrival Patrick, his Best Man and Ushers were busy with their duties, but for a short time their duties were interrupted  by  the ‘must have’ pictures of the Lamborghini with the guys!wedding-photographer-essex-st katharine's church great bardfield Before long it was time for the men and Guests to disappear inside the Church as Ania was on her way.  After the service, as the Guests mingled we took a couple of pictures of the Bridal Party.  With the Guests lining the Church path, Ania and Patrick exited the Church showered in confetti before leaving for the Wedding Reception in the Lamborghini.  Anser Gallows Farm looked a picture in the glorious sunshine and as Ania and Patrick were first to arrive we swiftly took them for a few portraits while their Guests were arriving .  A few smaller smaller family group pictures were taken during the afternoon before the Wedding Breakfast held in the lovely Barn.  Hearing the latest reports about the weather, Ania and Patrick wanted a few more pictures of the two of them and chose to do these in between courses rather than risk not getting them, which we were more than happy to do. It wasn’t long after this and during the superb Speeches that the heavens opened, we were very lucky! Later Ania and Patrick had their First Dance together followed by the party celebrations. wedding-photographer-essex-anser gallows farm A final picture of Ania and Patrick under an umbrella in the rain completed our coverage of their special day.  Well done to Patrick, being on the other side of the camera is not easy, but he did brilliantly!


Pre-Wedding Pictures

A pre-wedding meeting and pictures with a difference!  Patrick is a fellow Professional Photographer, who we know very well, and this would be the second time he would be photographed by us!  The first time was when he was an Usher at his friend’s Wedding which we photographed three years ago.  It was a beautiful afternoon when we met them to discuss the final details of their Wedding Day.  Deciding to go to the Church first to have a look around also provided us with the opportunity of taking a few pictures of Patrick and Ania in the field opposite and achieving some lovely pictures
